Question about installation was created by dking
Before I start just wanted to say thanks for this Herculean effort and I very much hope to enjoy the fruits of your labour, especially after loving the original series so much.

Back on topic. I'm a little confused about what it is exactly I should be installing to play this game, as after looking in the downloads section it just feels like a mish mash of stuff without any real explanations (unless I've missed it, which is probably the case), to my untrained eye.

So if somebody could maybe give me a step by step of what I need to install to play the full game, with all the whistles and bells on, I'd very much appreciate that.

One more thing; Is this game controller enabled?

Thanks in advance.

Well, let us start now...

So if somebody could maybe give me a step by step of what I need to install to play the full game, with all the whistles and bells on, I'd very much appreciate that.


1. It's really simple. Just download the big WCS ZIP file , it contains all what you need.

2. Then i suggest to use my WCS Setup ZIP Check & UnZip tool , download and unzip it in the same folder of darkest-dawn-setup.zip.

3. After the download of darkest-dawn-setup.zip is complete, just start darkest-dawn-setup_zip-check-unzip.exe and it will do the rest.

It does the following:
  • Checks if the download of the WCS ZIP file was successfully or not (CRC errors as example).
  • Unzips the WCS ZIP if the ZIP file is ok.
  • Starts the WCS Setup.

4. After WCS installation is finished, install the current WCS patch .

One more thing; Is this game controller enabled?


Yes. WCS supports a wide range of joysticks and gamepads. And you can play also with mouse. WCS have two different mouse profiles so you can select the best, fitting your preferences.

Have fun with WCS. :D

Hi guys, Wobble73 form HLP here, I've tried to get a reply there but got no answer. Here is the thread I started there. There seems to be a problem when I download this zip file (Darkest Dawn). I am using Google Chrome's Download manager and when the download gets to 100% it continues to download? I have had it over 5gb of a 3.32gb download? Does anyone have any ideas why this may be? The download manager has never had a problem with any other file and I have attempted this download a few times now?

Weird. Try using a different browser / download manager or try a different mirror.
